PUBLIC RADIO INTERNATIONAL is cancelling its daily interview show "FAIR GAME" as of FRIDAY (5/30), according to the NEW YORK TIMES. The show, hosted by FAITH SALIE, aired on about 25 stations and is being cancelled for financial reasons.
PRI SVP for Content MELINDA WARD told the TIMES, "We took a gamble on a show that was a departure for public radio, a little bit edgier. Unfortunately, the program didn’t catch fire fast enough, broadly enough to attract underwriting."
